Okay, it’s a new year, time to make and try to keep all those resolutions. And I really was doing quite well. Honest!
I asked for a Wii for Christmas from my kids because I need to get up and move more and I might as well enjoy it, right? I’m not good at exercise. I freely admit it. The choice of grabbing up a new book (I have plenty to choose from), writing that scene that came to me, or watching a little Criminal Minds always comes before exercising. I know this, hence the request. At least I can look at something while I’m moving.
For 19 days I did really well. The EB acted up a little after a few days, but not drastically and after two days off, I started up again. Face it, it’s a 2-inch step, even I can handle that.
Nope, I was wrong. While doing the basic step exercise – low impact aerobics – I stepped wrong to the left. It didn’t hurt, then, and I kept on. The next morning I knew I’d done something to my left foot, maybe turned it a little but I could walk. But it got worse. And it hurt. In fact, I finally went for an x-ray. It’s not broken, but bruised. No explanation on how I managed to do that on a 2-inch step.
